Just bought a very used East German AK kit, and lo and behold the
slant brake is rusted to the barrel. I shot it with WD-40 and put the
brake in a vice with cardboard to protect the nut, no luck. Do you guys
think heating this thing up with a torch would help it? Any tricks
out there (heating/cooling, special oil, ACME rust eater etc. : )

A big +1 for kroil. Soak it for a few days with kroil then squeeze vise grips on it and turn it. If that doesnt do it, heat the fucker real hot and turn it off. Remember they are reverse threads too. Slant brakes are a cheap part, dont worry about marring it or ruining it if it wont come off. Hye es? McM

The best thing to do would be to sell it to me. You shouldn't lower yourself to that level.

Where did you get this East German kit at?

That's EXACTLY the kind of tip I am looking for. Going out to find me some of this exotic elixir known as "Kroil"....although I seem to recall that was the name of Captain Kirk's arch nemesis on Star Trek episode 52 (the one where Kirk nailed the purple chick : ) I especially like the Andrea Doria reference !!!
Thanks!

I understand why you said that, I once saw a guy in my hood banging away for an hour at a brake drum on his Caravan, trying to loosen it. I walked over and released the parking brake for him...his wife just hung her head in shame : )

I would do that, indeed, but I have big plans for both of these kits ( I bought two for $245 here local ). I am going to do a screw build (gold plated screws) and have the metal parts chromed at Guiterez's chrome shop on fifth street. I am also taking off the crutch style folding stock, putting plastic side folders, bipods, and scopes on both, not to mention all the useless tactical paraphernalia I can find on the internet (screwed, bolted, or welded to the receiver cover or front grips).... I hope to have laser beams on them too : ) I wonder if they make plastic stocks with built in MP3 players?
